An unexpected gift has arrived for Carol Farley this Christmas: an envelope bearing a newspaper clipping and no return address. There, blurred but unmistakable, is a photo of a man missing for years and feared dead, Carol's father. It is a siren calling her to a world she has never known, to a place of ancient majesty and blood-chilling terror. Now, surrounded by towering pyramids on Mexico City's Walk of the Dead, a frightened yet resolute young woman searches for a perilous truth and for the beloved parent she thought was gone forever. But there are dark secrets lurking in the shadows of antiquity, a conspiracy she never imagined, and enemies who are determined that Carol Farley will not leave Mexico alive.More

Great title but disappointing & dislike reader
1) The reader. 2) Carol seems to level-headed & smart but then inexplicably gets a completely wrong-headed theory when the identity of the bad guy was SO obvious... Who Tom Andres was also became obvious but Carol overlooked it...3) Romance (reciprocated(!)) came totally out of left field
Not read in such an offhand contained tone. Sounds bored a lot.
Not really.Maybe Cate Blanchett for Carol? I definitely vote for Taylor Kitsch for Ivan!!!Danny? Ashton Kutcher (20 years or so ago).
I started this book & stopped & started & stopped & finally plowed forward and it got good and then Carol's solution went off in this totally wrong direction and I was going, "No, no, no!" and "Get out of there!" and she didn't listen. Then she got in serious danger and then wham! - it was over. Would have liked a little more on the conclusion. I'm inferring but not even totally sure of the final body count....
